I've been studying and performing voice overs for some time now. I've been told my voice has the following qualities:

-Authentic and friendly for commercials, promos, and live events without a heavy announcer style.
-Dramatic, warm, sentimental as a narrative storyteller.
-Funny, engaging character reads, believable testimonial and spokesperson reads for commercials.
-Bright, quick for an upbeat promo.
-Wry with a touch of schadenfreude for sarcastic promos.
-Casual and conversational or authoritative real-person delivery.

I'm flexible, collaborative, and easy to work with. And I have a home setup.

Thank you, Bonnie.
